Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, "Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow"- when you now have it with you.
Delaying people to come back to you over and over for their request creates an aura of power and control. The person in need is coming to you because you can do something to help them. There was something in you that lead them to your resources that God has blessed you with and now He expects you to share them. Every day, God expects us to look out for another and not try to control one another. Today, meet a need with one of your many blessings and God will restore what you think you'll be missing. In time, you won't even miss what you gave up.
